There Is Another Poetry - Poem by Shalom Freedman

THERE IS ANOTHER POETRY

There is another Poetry-
A poetry of inspiration
A poetry of help
A poetry of encouragement
A poetry of courage and heart
A poetry of love of life
Which teaches greater love of life.

There is another poetry
A poetry I would write
But the poetry I largely live in
Is complaint and question and fear and doubt
And trouble and sadness-
Oh why can’t I give some greater goodness to others
Than I am myself in my soul?

    Yes, I think like you there is another poetry, of inspiration and help, that is mine but you have to write the poetry that is yours, inside you. When you can write your own words you are successful. My father also loved poetry and was a poet and doctor and taught me about the beauty of poems, like you, best regards, from Argentina, Luz EtchemendiGaray.- (Report) Reply
